Personalised Body Sensor Networks with Built-In Intelligence for Real-Time Risk Assessment and Coaching of Ageing workers, in all types of working and living environments

Objective

Our overall objective is to develop a holistic, unobtrusive, autonomous and privacy preserving platform for real-time risk alerting and continuous coaching, enabling the design of workplace interventions adapted to the needs and fitness levels of specific ageing workforce. Gamification strategies adapted to the needs and wishes of the elderly workers will ensure optimal engagement for prevention and self-management of musculoskeletal health in any working/living environment. The BIONIC concept will be a game changer in medical wearable technology integrating sensor modules in multi-purpose, configurable Body Sensor Networks (BSNs) introducing key enablers of user acceptance based on value, comfort, confidence and trust. BIONIC consists of a multidisciplinary team of researchers in the field of Wearable Electronics (IAW), Artificial Intelligence, Wearables for Health applications, and experts in Ergonomics and Anthropometry, Occupational Safety and Health, Data Analytics and System Security and Personal Data Protection. Results will be validated n real workplace environments by two prominent European Enterprises from the Construction and the Manufacturing sectors.
